      Yes,it is fun, but the whole discussion concerns Biblical Studies, and the situation in other areas of Ancient Near Eastern studies is quite different and the study of the Bible no longer dominates the fractured field. The fact that Biblicist “giants” no longer dominate is quite liberating to some of us! Piotr
